-47. >> rasmussen in 2008 had the most accurate polls from 2008. we're going to ask scott about it on the show later. we asked him the last time we had new polls about the national polls. you can look at swing state polls and get a really nugget of information, national, sort of a not maybe as interesting. when you look at florida right now where the candidates, where mitt romney is campaigning north of orlando. look at this, florida, 49% right now to 47%, that's big bump from where president obama was leading mitt romney in the all important swing state. >> yeah, governor romney and his wife were down in florida yesterday campaigning hard and getting a pretty good reception. let's look at ann romney with some of the voters yesterday. >> every year, the median income in america-- >> and you are a tremendous asset to your husband. >> i appreciate that. you know, i-- we're doing everything we can, my boys, myself just out there working as hard as we can. >> well, i really believe that your husband is going to be-- i think they will have as much as ronald reagan did, he's going to do bet. >> i felt tha
the electoral map, we have some swing state polls, florida this is rasmussen and we ask america, two republican-leaning polls, but nonetheless you have romney winning in both of them in florida. >> they are both robo pollsters as well. and this is not necessarily reliable. i would wait a few day, but florida has been close all along. these are within the margin. i think we will be watching florida every day, every week until election day. >> jennifer: let's look at ohio. now in this rasmussen is only up by one point. he has been ahead by as much as 10 points ahead. >> i don't buy these yet. we ask america has had polls a all over the map this year. so i would wait and see -- >> jennifer: when you say they have a republican skew is that because they are oversampling republicans? >> yes, and because they are robo pollers, it is way too easy to get older voters. so you have to see how the more legitimate live pollsters are doing. >> jennifer: okay. virginia rasmussen has romney leading as does ask america, this a key state. and this number is not very helpful. >> y
however when asked are you definitely going to vote for your guy? definitely 43% in the rasmussen poll say yes for romney only 42 for barack obama. i believe if mitt romney does well and can sting the president like ronald reagan stung jimmy carter that he will immediately become the frontrunner and the so-called swings states will tighten up. most of them anyway. florida particularly will. that's my analysis right now. >> i think these state races probably will tighten but that's what happens in the final weeks of a campaign. races tend to tighten. this will be a closer race in all likelihood as we get closer to election day one senses though that look an incumbent running with a record like this with the economy in such serious shape many people predicting recession with all this trouble he he has been having overseas, with all of that he he ought to be in a lot of trouble. it's surprising to many people that he is ahead. we keep thinking something will happen. is he is not a great politician but seems honorable and decent enough man that if the people were ready to make a change they wo
the debate we had a poll out this was from the rasmussen report. they have barack obama 50% and mitt romney 49% and this is among likely ohio voters. seems to be a tightening in voters in ohio and everybody knows that is a crucial state. >> that is the whole kit and kaboodle. the path would be difficult if he does not win, ohio. rasmussen is a little bit of outliar here. more like 45. >> 49.36. >> so three. what you are seeing here is rasmussen is a little bit ahead of the curve. if he is in fact on his daily polling picking up something that is really good news for mitt romney. >> shannon: ed, what do you think, should the romney camp take it with a bit of cautious optimism? >> they shouldn't at all. execute their game plan. debated a tremendous bebait the other night. mitt romney made himself what he needed to be which was a viable alternative who put forth ideas o of how to get the economy moving again. the destates will will close up. i predict by the next debate this will be a dead even rate, dead even in the national polls and in the states critical. three weeks after that a knock dow
. he is feeling pretty good about things in florida. a new rasmussen poll has the governor two points ahead. here at this event he was looking to the next presidential debate a week from tuesday. he says he has questions on the president from taxes to debt and spending. >> he wants another stimulus? how did the first one work out? he wants to hire more government workers? he wants to pick with winners and losers solyndra, losers in his case. we know where that leads. we have seen the last four years. we don't want four more years like the last four years. >> reporter: the debate at the university on long island is going to include foreign policy. to that end the governor is rolling out the foreign policy ball. he has a big speech on foreign policy at virginia military institute in lexington. >> gregg: tell us how big the first debate is playing out in the campaign ads. >> reporter: both sides are trying to portray the other as the bigger fiber. he has new ad from both campaigns and both are saying the other is untruthful from taxes to anything under the sun. take a look. >> i don't ha
they are going to vote for romney. there are 15% in a rasmussen poll that are still uncommitted. bob bennett a former republican senator from utah and byron dorgan democratic senator from north dakota is also joining us. senator dorgan, that seems like a high number. what do you make of this ahead of wednesday night's debate? >> well most polls have are you certain and then also are you leaning? this doesn't have one of those categories. you know, this is kind of like a scavenger hunt for good polling news. it is entertaining, but it doesn't matter very much. what really matters is what do the polls show how independents feel in ohio, pennsylvania, florida, wisconsin and so on? so, you know, this is a close race. i think president obama is leading in the key swing states. and this debate is going to be very interesting, viewed by a lot of americans. so i think both candidates are going intoothis thinking they really have to do well. connell: senator dorgan is right senator bennett in that the president has been leading in the polls. take nbc "wall street journal" as an example in those swing
state. and then you got the deviations between rasmussen consistently and some of the other, whether it's quinnipiac or the other ones. that's all we got, though. and we have to talk about them, i guess. i take all of them with such a huge grain of salt. >> well, and joe, there's reason for all of us to take them with a bigger grain of salt than we used to in the past for this reason. it's becoming harder and harder to poll because response rates are down. >> recording. i hang up immediately. they're trying to give me a cruise. do you ever pick up the phone and it's -- and i go no, captain. i don't want to go. >> there are two different questions on the table, joe. one is the accuracy of telephone polling. it's getting harder and harder to do. most pollsters think we're going to move to online. but the second is the exit polls. >> i remember how downtrodden bush was in the afternoon. john kerry -- they were toasting mr. president in boston. >> this is where some of the participation rate questions also come into play. these are in person interviews. people with different views, if they
're going to begin right now with eric rasmussen. >> reporter: both president obama and mitt romney focused on their plans for the economy, and even had a lengthy debate about keeping obamacare. >> reporter: while the first debate started with a friendly greeting, even a mention of the president's 20th wedding anniversary, mitt romney came out swinging on the economy. >> the president has a view very similar to the view he had when he ran four years ago. that a bigger government, spending more, taxing more, regulating more. >> are we going to double down on the policies that got us into this mess, or do we embrace a new economic patriotism. >> reporter: romney often looked directly at the president who instead addressed most of his responses to the audience, or the moderator. the debate remained sizzled, mitt romney went after the president for green energy, and high profile companies in the bay area. >> you put $90 billion, like 50 years worth of breaks, into solar and wind. i have a friend who say you don't just pick the winners and losers, you pick the losers. >> reporter: the president
. rasmussen shows how many people are for the president and how many for mr. mitt romney . rasmussen poll was accurate in 2004 and 8 getting the results according to the track being poll. 43 percent said they are certain to vote for romney and 42 percent certain vote for obama and 15 percent haven't decided . >> gretchen: that's huge. that is a dead heat report to look at the certainty of these people they are voting early right and these people who know in the debates who they will vote for. these debates are for the undecided it is a huge chunk of the population. other than voters turn out of the base. that will turn the election>> eric: that is 10-20 percent of the undisguisable and persuadable. throw that poll up one more second. in the bottom of that. likely voters. those are the polls that are most accurate and go after the likely voters . not just people who poll random people. >> steve: you and i talked about george washington university. they do a battle ground poll . barak 49 percent x. romney 47. and now he leads by 4 in the independents which is a better number for the former
've seen so far postdebate is a rasmussen poll which actually has governor romney up by one point which is within the margin of error. the race is tight in virginia, as you point out, according to polling. the vast majority of polls taken this year have shown president obama ahead, many of them within the margin of error. in mid to late september, several polls including one commissioned by fox, another by "the washington post" and one by nbc, showed president obama ahead and seeming to widen his margin a little bit outside the margin of error. however, as i noted, there is that rasmussen poll out today, and that is a robo dial poll, but it does show governor ahead by one point. rasmussen has been slightly divergent from some of the polling -- jenna: you really know your numbers, julian. they tell us only so much, as you mentioned. being on the ground there with the appearances by both governor romney and the president, they've been to the state often, i mentioned the president 44 times as president, do these appearances really matter? do you think they're really having an impact on the
. rasmussen has him up two among likely voters. my theory is split the difference. it is somewhere close, romney has lost ground but not the kind of ground that we are hearing. most importantly the president is 50 percent approval and romney's favorables are going up. >>gregg: it is a national popular election. that brings me to the real clear politics electoral map. you have to win the states that have the big numbers attached. not election were held today, here is what you would have. obama at 265, five shy of what you have to get and romney at 191. i would say the polls and that electoral map is the best thing that could happen to romney. when it was a tie race, his natural instinct to play it safe overrode everything. now this is no doubt that he is behind, not fatally behind as pat and doug said, but he is behind the he has to change course. obviously, wednesday night is the last opportunity to change course. i think he started changing last week, took all of the ads off, put a new ad in, just himself, talking to the american people. >>gregg: let's lay the new ad with governor romne
? speakable last rasmussen was obama up by one point. other polls with a different spread, but this is going to be up to the debate. this is a key state, will come down to ohio again. romney needs to ohio to win. tracy: he certainly does. here in cleveland once again, how many? speak of those who have to drive around in town get annoyed with it, but we like it because they are here and up in this state. liz: it is so nice to see you, thank you for not revealing some of those stories. i am a real journalist, a peabody award winning journalist. thank you. thank you very much. >> congratulations with everything. >liz: thank you very much. coming up in the next couple of hours we have the mayor of cleveland, frank jackson, he's a democrat. also a republican working together to make this the fourth highest state for job creation. used to be 48. how did that happen? coming up. back to you guys. tracy: i think you and bill could do the fox affiliate in cleveland. liz: he would outshine me, he always did. tracy: good stuff, thank you very much. we will see the next hour of "markets now." mitt romney
wall street journal poll shows president obama's lead narrowing just a little. that's the rasmussen poll. new at ten top of the hour, you will not believe how many immigrants are getting government assistance like food stamps and welfare. only a small fraction of immigration applicants are denied. the judge is coming up on that one, 10 a.m. eastern. all right. back to nicole, netflix shares, what leading the s&p 500? >> that's right. and first of all, netflix is volatile stock that we're talking about not only because everybody has it, but because of the moves on netflix. today the number one performer on s&p 500. now 4 1/2% on the heels of what we heard from research, a company blog and in the equity research blog they actually featured netflix as a top company in tech and in research and stuff, so, there you go. now jumping and leading the way, on a day where you have the markets, virtually flat. stuart: yeah, all right. you're right. it's a volatile stock. it came all the way down from 300 and change all the way down and now it bounces around 4 or 5% on any given day and that's w
bit more insight into the polling. a rasmussen poll fromepo the weekend -- is more from the vice-president on the weekends and florida. [video clip] >> they're spending a lot of time telling you what barack obama and joe biden are against and what we have done. the attack everything. the truth of the matter is that nowhere is it more clear what they would do that in medicare. let me start by giving you a few specific examples. to make a examples. number one, they have laid out clearly, they say, that what barack obama and i did was we endangered medicare, that we stole money from medicare and we did this to get obamacare and all this. you see it in ads and everything they say. nothing could be further from the truth. everyone of you in this room who is on medicare or has a mother or father on medicare knows that since barack obama acted, your parents and those of you on medicare have more benefits than before. host: back to your calls on whether the vice presidential nominees will impact your vote? raymond is a democrat in waco, texas. caller: good morning. i want to make a comme
american people feel about the issues. rasmussen poll that the voters stands on the repeal of the health care law. 52 percent. 42 percent say bother. >> i am not surprised. the health care law lost popularity in the political campaign. but it is going to require a republican president and congress to undo the individual man date. if you are thinking can the supreme court rivisit the individual man date they can but probably won't. they >> gretchen: we could see more of the cases coming to them because of the 2700 pages. >> absolutely and soon maybe 2700 different cases out >> gretchen: and you will look at all of them. have a great day. before you get on a plane, prime target for terrorist and about to meet the team whose job it is to cope them out. it is it a busy morning in "fox and friends". barry sanders and why he's switching to be a mitt romney vorst now. the former governor of california arnold schwarzeneggar, stick around. ♪ jenna shared her recipe with sharon, who emailed it to emily, who sent it to cindy, who wondered why her soup wasn't quite the same. the recipe's not the r
